Highlight, copy, and then paste on here.
Actually, use the one that has IMG Code (bottom line), that way it'll show up on here for everyone to see and we won't have to get linked to another page.

Yeah, definitely see what condition the rods and pistons are in. I'm in Boring, OR (please don't laugh), so you'd have to ship them if you wouldn't mind. But check them out first. thanks.

haha no worries brotha'...we all have to give a newbie a bad time just to see if they'll stick around. How soon do you think you'll have this turbo swap done?

rockauto.com is great for everything, lol. Certifit if you have to buy body panels, but you'll have to get it from there warehouses (check there website for locations).

Icon7 were cool

I know how it goes. It just doesnt help I can be tempermental towards everything. I hope to have the truck done within a one or two weeks. I just need gaskets and the return line. Then I have to run oil lines and exhaust, etc. check out my youtube page @ dieseltechy360 I will try to get the build put into video as I go. Thanks for the help. I will talk to my buddy tomorrow. I should be able to pull off a pretty good deal with him.

I dont know yet

When I do get the turbo on I am going to redo timing. If I can find someone around here who can do it affordably I will have them do it.

thats where im planning on putting mine=) think im gonna hit up the junkyard and just drill and tap a differnt pan just for the ease and less down tim of my truck and possibly pick up a new head for some work =)

But man i would do some major research befor slaping that turbo on there there is alot of factors beside just bolting on and going I.E. tuning, MAF, Injectors, are you gonna intercool it, Blow off valve and so on i know you may only wanna boost a few psi but the stock MAF will blow up at2-3psi and even with that you'll need more fuel and then once you get more fuel/air you need a tune that you can not fix with just the timing which you can do yourself with the right equipment as in a xcal tuner but once you over about 7psi then you wanna think about intercooling and internals the internals from the car you scored the turbo from will fit perfectly except for the crank but you dont need that your stocker with hold fine but if you need anymore info dont be affraid to ask i know theres a couple turboed rangers on here lurking in the mist lol

Good luck
